I imagine the affected games might be moved to Dunedin (where I am at the moment incidentally) instead which is a few hours drive south. Little bit of rescheduling of games, but I don't think it'll cause any major problems, we have many stadiums.
Excellent news. Some of the reports here said that as much of the centre of Christchurch would have to be demolished there could be a problem with accommodation due to too many affected hotels. I didn't really imagine the competition would be cancelled but the situation is undoubtedly going to cause a few logistical problems.
On a slightly different note. Dunedin, if my memory serves me properly, is where we came the closest ever to beating the All Blacks. It was in 1990 just after we won our last Grand Slam. John Jeffrey still blames Gavin Hastings for losing that game!
